Kim and Jane: Chapter 5.16 "Happy Holidays"

Last time with the Diffys, Aidan aged into a child, with many parties and pregnancies during those parties. Jane and Emmie had a *super serious* conversation about feelings, and Emmie gave her a flashdrive full of old photos. This time...

Kim: "Now Aidan, I'll help you with your homework, but you will have to do all the actual work yourself. It's all about integrity."
Aidan: "But I don't like Frankenstein, Mom! I read the first two chapters and it already gave me the creeps! And now I have to fill out these question sheets..."
Kim: "Ah, Frankenstein; my father would've liked it for sure. Anyway, we'll just read it together."

So Kim's laptop was broken, and I sent Jane to fix it. Then I saw that she left it without finishing the repair job, and sent her to fix it again. And found her like this:
Jane: "I stopped messing with this laptop the first time because it gave me a shock. It's very old and was cheap in the first place. And how many 'accidental' deaths have you had in this legacy?"
Well, only two...three if you count both hottub deaths.
Jane: "BOTH hottub deaths???!"
Uh, moving on...
So...only 40 simoleons for that repair man?
You have a tool belt.
But a tool belt does not a repair man make. He eventually fixed our sink and the laptop, though.
Aw, you guys. <3
Oh...oh my...
Oh myyy
Wendy had an opportunity which ended by talking to Marilyn Downes.
But what's interesting is that she has a lot of kids...and some of them need help.
I tried to fix this little girl, but...she still needs some help here. D:
This picture is just for the pretties of winter.
And this picture is because I got curious one time about how far out into the water you can go. And this right here is how far! And you can totally see the edge! Just like in The Truman Show! (BTW if you've never seen it, The Truman Show is an excellent movie. Also the video I linked contains spoilers).

At this point there were a few thousand simoleons saved up, so I used it to add some decor to the bedrooms:
Kim and Thad's room.
Jane's room (that yellow circle is a light).
Wendy's room (hers is especially bare; she's not much into decorating xD). Honestly just being able to add curtains to these rooms made them feel so much more complete.
And Emmie's old room is now a game room (and later it becomes a sort of cat room).
And everyone wished for holiday house lights. I like them, too.
 Kim, in all her glitchiness, disappeared for a while.
 This problem righted itself by the morning, I just think it's hilarious that Thad's about to woohoo with a skill bar. I guess he's into that. :P
Thad: "Kim? Are you in there? This bed haunting thing isn't so sexy anymore, and my shoulders hurt in this position."
 Jane: "It's been a minute since we talked, girrrrl."
 Jane: "Care for a hug?"
Wendy: "Jane, wait, there's something that I have to tell you before anything else."
 Wendy: "I've thought about other people..."
 Jane: "Bu--wha--"
 Wendy: "But my mind always comes back to you. I thought I couldn't trust you, and I didn't know if I wanted a relationship at all, but I've decided that I really do want you to be a part of my life. I can't really help it; this is the way I feel now."
Jane: "Oh."
 Jane: "Well, there's something you don't know about me, and I suspect not many people do. I'm not only attracted to women, I'm attracted to men, too."
 Wendy: "Oh, well, that doesn't really matter to me. As long as our relationship is just between us."
Jane: "Of course, Wendy. You're the only one that I'm attracted to now."
 Wendy: "I've actually been feeling guilty about that; I hope you aren't too mad."
Jane: "I'm not mad, In fact, you want to come down to my room? I've got a widget I've almost finished, and then we could talk some more."
Wendy: "Let's go."
 Jane: "Just one second and I'll be done."
 Wendy: "Do you have the window open?"
Jane: "Yeah, oops! I had it open earlier before it started snowing."
 Wendy: "So do you want to make 'us' official? Like on SimBook?"
 Jane: "Really? Yeah! I'm glad you trust me like that."

Wendy: "I trust you completely."
 With snow days ongoing, I sent Aidan out into the town to find friends. This is Wanda Bingley, Charles' niece.
 Well aren't you cute now.
Aidan: "Want to build a snowman?"
 Wanda: "Oooh I love that song! Come on let's go and play..."
Aidan: "Way to drive away what few readers we have...are you going to help?"
 She eventually assisted with the snowman.

Hello vampy Gil McGinnis!
 Yay kittens! The one on the left is Sally, and on the right is Nora. Traits not unknown but unremembered.
 Jane: "Oh look at the kitties!"
Whatever, Jane. You haven't cared about cats since ever.
 Ok cats being cats. We'll get back with you later.
 Holiday party time!
 Isn't this just a wonderful party? No one's pregnant this time. (Hi Jeramie and Reg!)
 Oh...oh Bridgette.
 Thad is very sad. I'm rather uncaring, but this is ruining the party for me.
 Kim: "Thad!"
 Ami: "Bridgette's dying! And she's not much older than I am! Thank you for giving her a great party to send her out!"
 Aidan: "Grandma Bridge is dying!"
 Aidan: "Hey, I just remembered it's my birthday! And my grandma's dying...conflicting emotions...I might be stuck now..."
 I really did want this to be a nice holiday party and a celebration for Aidan's birthday, but, oh well.
 Aidan: "She got a box? Well that's depressing."
Something about that box urn just reminds me of how different it might be if I'd chosen Bridgette instead of Maura for Salem. Oh, alternate dimensions.
 What? Not Ami! I really like Ami!
 Emmie: "I've seen Death many times before, and each time is worse than the last."
I'm sorry that everyone's so distracted, Ami.
Ami: "That's ok. I'm not one for making big scenes."
 Alright, everybody out! Party's over!
 Later in the night, Cinnamon Bun makes an appearance.
 Cinnamon Bun: "I really like this. Emily needs to see it, too!"
C.B.! ;_;
Let's end this with some thing positive: Wendy made her first friend through busking!

Welcome Regan Capp! Hope your ok with making a few appearances and wearing this!
Regan: *whispers* "Thank you."

Next time: Aidan tries to make friends! If I can get him out of the house.
Aidan: "I'm NOT going to the park!"


  1. Aww, kitties <3

    Aidan grew up to be a cutie pie <3 hopefully he will find friends while remaining inside

    1. Yes, though I think he will have to get out sometime, even if I have to force him.

      Thanks for reading!

  2. Oh, my goodness. I swear I typed out a response about six hundred different times (OK, more like 5), but for some reason the page kept refreshing itself and my comments were banished to the netherworld or whatever. So frustrating... Anyway!

    1) Aidan is adorable. I like him already

    2) Your chaotic birthday party made me laugh. It seemed fitting, though, your Diffys always seemed to attract a bit of weirdness. Especially the parties xD

    3) Great update, very funny as usual! ^.^

    It's always great to see your sims again!

    1. Ugh I hate when that happens! I always try and ctrl+c my comment now just in case so I can just paste it back in.

      1) I like him, too. I think his generation will be fun.

      2) Oh man, parties can never go off without a hitch anymore! Someone's always dying or giving birth, but that's just the circle of life I guess. It's always fun to see how horribly a party can go but still see Sims having the great party thought bubble.

      3) Thank you! I always hope that even if it's not the greatest story, or nothing much happens, it can still be amusing.

      Thanks for reading. :D

  3. So much awesomeness rolled into one update! Lol. "How many accidental deaths have you had in this legacy?" Bwahahaha... loved it! Wanda Bingley is so darn CUTE! Aidan grew up handsome, as well! I love his eyes!

    1. I had to make Jane say something snarky there; I felt a little bad for putting her through that without even realizing it at first.

      Wanda is cute! I'm keeping an eye on her.

      Aidan gets his eyes from his grandfather, Salem. I really like that icy blue!

      Glad you like it! :D Thanks for reading!

  4. lol, and the tradition of entertaining (that's not morbid right, considering it was deaths this time? ha!) parties continues! Out of all the sim parties, I love the gift-giving one the best, it's so much fun to see what weird present the sims get!

    Aidan grew up nicely! I look forward to seeing what he gets up to. =)

    1. It's just the circle of life at these parties; always there to remind you of your impending doom, or future responsibilities. I really like gift-giving parties, especially since you're guaranteed your guests won't just stand around the whole time, lol.

      Thanks for reading!
